Jessie leaves home despite the misgivings of his parents, a doctor and a teacher, and his beloved girlfriend, to pursue his dreams at an elite, formerly all-white prep school, where he hopes to get on the path to become a pro hockey player. At his new school, he expects to encounter racist fans and opponents, but finds that he must overcome even more dangerous enemies on his own team, not to mention his coach, who clearly despises him solely because of the color of his skin.
